Wellness Care

Regular checkups keep your pet healthy through all the stages of their life. At your wellness visit, the doctor will do a thorough physical exam and discuss in detail any findings or concerns. Our exams are performed in the exam room with the pet parent present so you will have ample one-on-one time with the doctor to ask questions along the way. At regular checkups, we can detect many normal age-related changes or conditions early when they are easier and less expensive to treat. A wellness visit is a great time to discuss any questions or concerns you may have about your pet, and make a preventive care or treatment plan to keep your pet healthy and happy. At your wellness visit, we can do routine diagnostic blood work and update vaccines. We have treats and toys and will make your pet’s visit as pleasant as possible!

Just as with humans, regular vaccinations are an especially important part of your pet's health care routine. Vaccines help prepare the body's immune system to fight foreign organisms, protecting against multiple life-threatening diseases and providing your pet the best chance at a long, healthy life.

Puppies and kittens should begin to receive vaccinations beginning at about 6-8 weeks. Our team will work with you to determine your pet’s regular vaccination schedule based on breed, age, current health, and lifestyle.

Parasite Screening and Prevention


Companion animals are likely to become infected with parasites at some point in their lives. If left undetected and untreated, they will affect a pet’s well-being – from simply being irritating to causing a variety of life-threatening conditions. Some parasites can even infect and transmit disease to humans, with children being an especially vulnerable target! Parasites don’t discriminate; both indoor and outdoor pets are at risk.

It’s always better to prevent than to treat parasitic illness. That's why we recommend regular testing for internal parasites as well as heartworm and tick-borne diseases. The presence of one or more of these illnesses can be determined through bloodwork, and we recommend all pets have this test performed on an annual basis so any detected problems can receive immediate intervention.

One out of every three pets will become lost at some point in their lifetime. Make sure yours has the best chance of returning home and consider getting them microchipped. A microchip is about as big as a grain of rice, and it causes no pain or discomfort for your pet. Call us for more information.
